Yesterday, after I posted on what someone from Men’s Journal had sent me and asked to share their article for our readers, I didn’t quite get a chance to weigh in on the totality of the article which covered a lot of ground. I simply posted a quick excerpt for them with a link to their full article. It’s quite apparent that Matt Harvey has a taste for the finer things in life, is huge […]
From Jon Heyman, CBS Sports: Bobby Bonilla’s increasingly infamous deferred compensation arrangement with the Mets is actually two separate deals totaling more than $40 million, not only the $30 million that has been previously reported, people familiar with the world’s longest sports deal told CBSSports.com. Plus, a third 25-year Mets deferred compensation agreement, this one for former pitcher Bret Saberhagen, is also on the team’s books, bringing the grand total to close to $50 million. Deferred, of […]
There has always been a perceived tension between pro-analytics baseball fans and anti-analytics fans. The battle is already over and done with in front offices, as both have been able to coexist, but there are still fans who disagree. Really, most of the disagreements are caused by ignorance towards the other side, a lack of knowledge. For people to understand sabermetrics, they must get past some of the biggest myths. Here are a few of […]
Cork Gains (Cork? Really?) of Business Insider wrote a disturbing piece last week about the future of baseball advertisement that you can read here. Sportsnet, the Blue Jay’s TV network, is now placing ads on some of the last remaining ad-free surfaces of sporting events, the playing field.

In the summer of 1990 the Yankees were playing the White Sox in a relatively unimportant game. “Neon” Deion Sanders walked to the plate and with the end of his bat he drew an “S” in the dirt with a line through it. A dollar sign. The Sox catcher immediately wiped it away. Undeterred, the 22-year-old Sanders again marked the area in front of home plate with a dollar sign. “That’s why I’m here,” he stated […]

Is it me or has veteran broadcaster and baseball historian Bob Costas gone from beloved to just plain old bewildering over the last few years? He always seems to embroil himself in every controversy that comes around and not in a good way either… Sometimes he even likes to stir up his own controversies,,, During a sports update on NBC this evening, they showed video of the Mets comeback 4-3 comeback win and the celebration […]
“Not so fast, Sandy. I’m calling the shots around here.” – JP Morgan Sandy Alderson told Joel Sherman of the New York Post, that he will likely have a $90 to $100 million payroll budget next season. When you factor in Wright, Niese, raises and arbitration eligible players, the Mets have roughly $55 million in payroll commitments for the 2014 season. That should give Alderson about $45 million to spend, but still only giving him a payroll that […]
